First District Plaza is a well kept secret, home to 90,000 square feet of prime office space and private underground parking at the gateway of University City. Born out of the tradition of the African Methodist Episcopal church founded by Richard Allen, its cultural and historical value dates back to 1986 when the three-story red brick building was erected. Additionally, FDP is home to The Grand Ballroom Philadelphia, one of the city’s largest, flexible event spaces of
more than 14,000 square feet.
Our tenants include offices of Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, University City District-West Philadelphia Skills Initiative, China USA International, Inc., Dr. David Finkel, Penn Community Health Workers, and the Headquarters of the First District of the African Methodist Episcopal Church.
Currently, First District Plaza has 5,200 square feet of individual and en suite office space available to show and lease, making the perfect workspace for a medical practice, law practice or growing IT/tech firm. The possibilities are endless and affordable.
